Day one – Tuesday 5 October

Pivoting during COVID-19: Learning and implications from a time like no other

Day one will involve presentations from academics involved with community engagement and service-learning, community partners, and students who ‘pivoted’ in their work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Day one also includes our ‘Cultural cuisine cook-off’, an informal networking session that provides an opportunity to meet and chat with other conference attendees over some tasty treats. We encourage you to join us for morning tea/supper with a home cooked treat from your partner country. For Australia, that means cooking up some Chicago classics. We have included some suggested recipes in the session details online, but feel free to explore other local cuisines that tantalise your tastebuds.
